Bermudians Lindsay Davis and Richard Butterfield dated for nine years before tying the knot on July 11, 2015—giving the bride plenty of time to fill up her “One day…” Pinterest board for their future wedding. When Richard proposed on Christmas Day, 2014, Lindsay was well prepared with all the details she wanted incorporated on their big day, and turned to good friend and wedding planner Selange Gitschner to put it all together in six months. “I wanted the wedding to feel effortless, natural and just romantically beautiful,” said Lindsay. “Selange took my vision and executed it perfectly. All the little details were her idea and I loved everything!”
To set the tone for the day, a beautiful watercolour monogram was created by Kearsley Lloyd Design and used on everything from the save-the-dates to the invitations, website, programme, gift bags for guests and even the dance floor. The tables were adorned with watercolour numbers on cedar slabs and casual arrangements of garden roses and local greens. Selange sourced macramé art and flowerpot hangers, oversized balloons, and a swing which she decorated with ferns and white roses along with florist Suzan Sickling. “Suzan and Selange worked together to make the arrangements feel effortless, but they were all perfectly planned,” said Lindsay.
With Lindsay being the general manager of ESC Limited, the lighting was of utmost importance. “I wanted the lighting to look like a fairytale with lots of twinkly lights,” she said. “We brought in 600 feet of string lights for the evening. Selange and her team got my vision and executed it perfectly.”
And a perfect day it was, said the bride. “Rich and I said from the very beginning that all we really wanted was a fun party with great family and friends, good food and music. The day was perfect from beginning to end.”
